The Cast Clinic provides excellent outpatient care for children ages 0-15 years with fractures. Some of the services we provide are splint removals, cast removals, cast placements and pin removals. The goal of our program is for the patient to heal from the fractures without longstanding complications.
Patients are referred to the Cast Clinic after being seen at the Dell Children’s Emergency Department.
Team Members Include:
Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Social Worker, Child Life Specialist, Cast Technicians and Radiology. We provide an interpreter for our Spanish speaking families and have means of obtaining an interpreter for other non English speaking families.
The Cast Clinic is held weekly at the Specialty Care Center. This is an excellent opportunity for families to discuss their concerns or ask questions in regards to their child’s fracture and healing process.
